HIGHLIGHTS

  1. 4 days in Torres del Paine, the jewel of Patagonia, at a deluxe lodge right in the National Park – with hikes/walks, boat rides to glaciers, searching for pumas, etc.

  2. 4 days in the pristine Atacama Desert, the closest Alex says he has ever “felt to the sky”, including visits to the moon valley, the Tatio Geysers, gorgeous desert lakes, and more.

  3. Visit Santiago, Chile’s cosmopolitan capital, its colorful UNESCO-protected port Valparaiso, and elegant Punta Arenas, the southernmost city in the world.

  4. Local expert photographers in both Patagonia & Atacama to take us the best possible places in the best light.

  5. An itinerary planned around the lunar calendar to experience some of the best skies in the world up north (and a dedicated outing with an expert for astrophotography).

  6. An optional extension to the jaw-dropping Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia. 

  7. OSE owner Alex Ros, as your personal trip leader. Alex lived in Chile seven years, is fluent in Spanish, and has been leading tours in Chile, a country he is passionate about, since 2003.
